  1. thanks so much Miodarag , really great and at the same time simple to memorize stuff;Only one funny thing: minute 4.43 and minute 11..00 you reached the same exact position via two differt ways…. inthe first you suggested d5 , and in the second you suggested e5😅. Anyway , i checked with the engine, and the wayto go is e5 , with + 2 evaluation.

  2. I'm used to play the italian game, especially with the morphy attack and the maxlange attack. Your ideas in the guoco piano variation are just awesome ! thank you so much !

  3. In my earlier games i extensively played giuoco piano to avoid frued liver but i realize that it is always good for white. I stopped Giuoco piano and switched to two night defense lets see if anything is changed for black.

  4. Well done Mio! Very well done! I enjoyed and already practicing and with success if I may add. For my rating this is a new shiny tool in my chess tool belt. Thank you Mio! HVALA!

  5. Love this video sir! I’ve been playing the Moller Attack for pretty much my whole life and I’ve collected so many cheap points with it. However, you’ve given me a couple of new ideas to try after h6 and they will come in very handy. Thank you!

  6. Hvala Mijo za poučan video,čekamo Evansov gambit.

  7. Brilliant video and analysis. Thanks for going beyond the opening to middle game and tactics. Fantastic! Thank you!

  8. Great Video series on the Italian opening. As a newbie I am learning a lot of good stuff.

  9. You have the best chess content on youtube. You play the most fun openings and they are all the openings I'm trying to learn. Can we get an all Smith-Morra playlist?

  10. It's Prejudices blowing over giuoco piano sir ji thankyou Miodrag Perunovic!!!!🎉🎉🎉🎉🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🎉.

  11. The correct saying was…old wine in a new bottle

  12. Seems like a good bet and trade off: white wins 90% of the games if he knows the lines and black has to play like Stockfish to win the other 10%.
